In January 2022, we partnered with Soho House to run the writer's development program for Soho Works. 

Every month, we invite a guest speaker to lead a four hour session from 6PM to 10PM in one of the Soho locations in London. 

We are excited to announce the continuing partnership for 2024.

Previous guest speakers at Write Club Soho Works x Soho Works include:

T E S T I M O N I A L S :

"A lot of us struggle with carving out space to be writers amongst the day jobs and other responsibilities, but we also struggle with accountability to our creative selves. When it feels like there is no out there waiting for your story, it can feel hard to keep going. It’s why groups like this are so important."
- Nasri Atallah


“I sit on the Inclusivity Board at Soho House and the Committee at Soho Works.

I go to a lot of the events here and the Houses, and I don’t feel like I’ve got the sense of community from other workshops I’ve attended. We have a lot of people that come in and create space, which is great, but all of the connections I have in Soho are a result of the people I met at Write Club. 
It feels like family rather than just a community”.

-  Melissa Sinclair

"As a first-time visitor to Write Club, I was delighted to see how well organised it was and how likeminded many of the people I met there were. It was liberating being able to have the time to put some thoughts down on paper, and even more so going through the process of sharing them with the group. Write Club will certainly be a monthly staple for me and I'm already looking forward to the next one."
-  Martin Hislop

"The Write Club team run fantastic sessions which I’d recommend to anyone with an interest in writing. Their guest speakers - often impressively big names! - talk about their careers and use their experience to offer a mix of advice and encouragement that usefully straddles the border between ‘inspiring’ and ‘realistic’. Plus, there are always ingenious exercises to get everyone in the room writing there and then, often in ways they might not have done so before - and it’s a treat to hear the results of these read aloud. I’ve really enjoyed getting involved with their sessions - and I can see that any organisation which has an interest in driving creativity could do well to book Write Club, too."
- Toby Smith

"I am never happier than when I am stringing words together into sentences, but writing is often a very isolating hobby done in solitude. So, I can’t tell you how thankful I am for the monthly Write Club London events at Soho. It makes my heart happy to spend an evening with fellow aspiring and accomplished writers.
It is
 a fantastic opportunity to share work that has never seen the light of day.
I am a Magazine Editor, but I suffer with imposter syndrome. In the Write Club bubble of creative souls, I am encouraged to read my work aloud. It’s such a safe
space to share.

- Rebecca Archer

"Write Club is, in my opinion, the best event Soho Works puts on.

The quality of talent that runs through the event is exceptional. "

- Ady Lloyd
